Wherever I Wind Up: My Quest for Truth, Authenticity and the Perfect Knuckleball by R A Dickey
Wherever I Wind Up: My Quest for Truth, Authenticity and the Perfect Knuckleball

K Kulish, January 1, 2013

This is one of the best autobiographies I have read in quite some time. Brutal, honest, eye-opening and informative, you learn about the man and the sport in a balanced, truthful (warts and all, as the phrase goes) that will have you looking at baseball in a new light. There is a reason R.A. Dickey earned his acclaim on the field in 2012, and his story tells us all how he's deserves it. Wishing him best in his newest chapter and readers a wonderful time enjoying this book.

The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicles #1) by Patrick Rothfuss
The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicles #1)

K Kulish, August 4, 2012

Patrick Rothfuss has written a book you do not want to end. A brilliant frame story that recounts a life, as its teller wishes it to be told. The world, the characters, the situations may be labeled fantasyesque given the touch of magic involved, but they all combine in a page-turning story that engages from start to finish.
As the title implies, this is only volume one, and volume two is equally engaging. Until the third arrives, they are both worth reading and reading. Mr. Rothfuss knows how to craft a fine tale.

Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
Beautiful Creatures

K Kulish, January 1, 2010

Great, thrilling, a page turner that keeps your attention. More than a teen book. Great tale of Southern life, mystery and love.

The Dickson Baseball Dictionary by Paul Dickson
The Dickson Baseball Dictionary

K Kulish, April 26, 2009

For people who say baseball is "boring" I show them Paul Dickson's book. The background on America's greatest game, the history he supplies and the explanations unmasque the joy, anecdotes and machinations behind the greatest living game of chess played everyday in parks across the Americas and beyond (and developed on dusty little league mounds and city streets). Prices may be high at some of the newer parks, but gaining an appreciation for this wonderful game is worth the price of this amazing reference accessible to everyone.

Final Theory by Mark Alpert
Final Theory

K Kulish, July 5, 2008

Mark Alpert has crafted a scintillating summer read page-turner that will keep thriller lovers on the edge of their seat. Comparisons have been made saying that this is a "DaVinci Code" with science. Sure, but there is more to this tale. Alpert has made the science in his book comprehensible and he has crafted characters that we care about. I for one am looking forward to his next effort.
